The spices grown on
this island give its cuisine the distinctive flavors that make
Jamaican meals a special event. Pimento (allspice) is the best
known and one of the most used, creating the distinctive taste
of jerked fish, pork, and chicken.
Escallion. This member
of the onion family frequently appears in Jamaican recipes. If
you can't find escallion, substitute green onion tops.
Nutmeg. Order a rum
punch in most island bars and you'll have a look at a popular
use of nutmeg: sprinkled on top of the potent drink. Nutmeg is
a popular spice on this island. The tree grows naturally throughout
the island and produces a seed, called the nutmeg. A red, stringy
covering around the seed is called mace.
called allspice in other parts of the world, is a star among Jamaican
spices. Without the pimento, Jamaica would not have jerk, that
delightful side-of-the-road dish that has moved from fast food
to gourmet status in even the finest of restaurants.
